Plosion Flute Ensemble

PLOSION is UB's Concert Flute Ensemble. Among recent appearances have been performances for Discover UB, WBFO-FM Radio's "OPUS: Classics Live", St. Paul's Cathedral Friday Noon Recital Series, Classics on Elmwood, the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, the Rochester Flute Association, Pantasmagoria 2004, UB's Wellness Center, and Adelphia Cable TV's "Crossroads". Additionally, members have participated in the Coleman Chamber Music Competitions and June in Buffalo Festival concerts.

Registered students participate in weekly coaching sessions relevant to performance of chamber music written for and/or including flutes. In addition, students can rehearse and perform in chamber ensembles of varied size and instrumentation; explore new & used repertory for chamber ensembles involving flutes; work with departmental collaborative pianists, faculty and graduate assistant coaches, and other student instrumentalists; strengthen individual social skills in striving to perform effectively within a group; ensure coaching time and credit for extra-curricular playing activities; de-mystify the performance experience through guided preparation; inform perspective regarding sensitive, responsible, and constructive group function and interactions. Registered students are guaranteed participation in at least one public program each semester, presented in either Baird Recital or Lippes Concert Hall in Slee Hall.

PLOSION is directed by Emlyn Johnson, who brings her extensive experience as a professional flautist to her role as director.
